Instructional Ideas
  • Have groups research up-to-date statistics for refugee camps, their location, the number of camps, the approximate number of people living in the camps, and camp conditions before beginning the activity
Classroom Considerations
  • Several versions of Carly's Story are available online; preview to determine the version most appropriate to your learning situation
  • This resource is only available on an unencrypted HTTP website. It should be fine for general use, but don’t use it to share any personally identifiable information
  • The five-page packet includes cards that detail the the aspect their group is to investigate
  • No specific information is included in the cards; the initial groups need to research to find current statistics
  • No rubric for the poster is included
